Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to the twenty-seventh issue of the Bootleggers Buzz!

I realize that it is somewhat late compared to the usual time of publishing. However, there were some issues I had to tend to prior to setting up the Buzz, hence the altered release time. It is nice for us to see that players are looking forward to a release, it makes working for the Buzz worthwile.

Man oh man, what a week. Yes, on Bootleggers, not my own week. Compared Lew's standards, my weeks are usually quite uneventful, and this one was no exception. The Bootleggers week saw enough action, though. Wipes from both The Syndicate and Eternal Labyrinth, who respectively wiped Event Horizon and The Order, and The Invisibles and Virtual Reality.

In addition, Prince decided that it was time for Ombra Di Lucifer to retire; The Fraternity returned by the force of bullets, and Lew's kitchen has been mopped. Wait, scratch that last item off the list, it has no purpose there, really.

Sean has also submitted an article for this issue. The first in what will be, based on what I understood, a returning segment for the coming weeks. Please let both him and us know how you feel about it. As always, all feedback is appreciated.

Weekly articles, or segments, or whatever. 'The Weekly Flash', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', and the 'Obituaries'. Yes, the Obits have returned. Thanks to a feature of Altrozero's helpsite it has become somewhat easier for us to create them, although we are still required to copy and paste the kills from the Statistics page. Bearing that in mind, please forgive us if a death has not been included.

Those who wish to become a member of the Buzz Team are encouraged to submit an application article on the bottom of this page. If you would like some hints and tips then please refer to the 'Road to the Buzz Forum' article in Issue 27. We will do our very best to respond to every application as soon as we can, usually within two weeks. Also, please remember to re-submit your application if your account is dead as we cannot track your new account. This would in this case apply for Cesc, who we cannot contact due to him having died.

Freelance articles are always appreciated as well! They are a great way to voice your opinion about a game related event. They do not have to meet the same requirements as applications in order to be published. All freelance articles are published as long as they are game related and do not contain content that is against the Terms of Service. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Well, that would be all for the notes. We will be back next week, and we hope you will as well.
As always, enjoy the read; take care, and stay safe.

EH and TO wiped! AbuRaghebV9

This week, Bootleggers witnessed what may have been one the biggest shoot outs ever made since the very beginning of this round. Bullets were sent flying towards members of both Event Horizon and The Order, and their ranks started to fall off as leaves from a dying tree. Both crews perished in the event...
